Forum Post: Imagining Post-OWS America

I'm curious--

Is anyone aware of any journalistic, theoretical or fictional writing which coherently imagines / predicts events which could occur following a movement like OWS in America, to transition into a clear vision of a new society?

Jack London's novel the Iron Heel is quite interesting. It's about the events that lead up to the establishment of a utopian society but is totally vague about the actual functioning of that society. It's kind of like 1984 with an optimistic outcome. Trotsky loved it.

This looks interesting, thanks.

I guess what I'm particularly after is some sort of comprehensive narrative description of one possible scenario for transforming a society that resembles contemporary America.

It could be a work of science fiction, or of speculative anthropology, or something...

I think this could be important?
